Mike WilksThe art of Mike Wilks (British, b. 1947) is characterized by intensely realistic (sometimes surrealistic) detail—think art appreciation and a game of discovery, all in one. Wilks began his artistic career at 13 when he won a scholarship to art school. He ran a successful graphic design business for five years before he sold it and began writing and illustrating books in 1975. He rocketed to fame following publication of The Ultimate Alphabet in 1986; the puzzle book was a global bestseller. Each image contains dozens, if not hundreds, of items, all beginning with the same letter of the alphabet. After eight illustrated books, he established himself as a novelist with The Mirrorscape Trilogy, a fantasy adventure series. Wilks, who was the subject of an award-winning British documentary, lives in London. His drawings and paintings now reside in museums, galleries, and private collections around the world.
We started out looking at the picture on the box and puzzled together a few pictures and then we decided to hide the box away. That made the puzzle all the more fun. We are working on Bosch's Garden of Earthly delights right now. We had 3 minutes to look at the box, so much fun, very challenging and each little puzzle piece is a miniature work of art.
We enjoy all the Mike Wilks puzzles from Pomegranate. A lot of fun to solve and even more fun to examine the intricate composition once the puzzle is complete.
